Johnnies pastrami still as great as it's always been. I haven't been there in years but food is always great. Must try the Pastrami sandwich, pickles always on the table.

Been eating here for years and it is always good. Love my fries well done and my pastrami with extra mustard. Oh and the drinks have crushed ice!

Their pastrami sandwiches are sublime. The pastrami is really tasty, and they don't stint when they're piling it on the sandwich. They also have AMAZING pie.

If you never have eaten here, this is your chance to have a great experience. Make sure you eat there. You get the bottomless pickles if you do. I don't normally eat pickles, but for some reason I really like theirs. Been going there for more than 35 years.

Johnnie's has been around since the early 50's and looks like it. Don't get me wrong, it is clean and well maintained. The booths are old school and there is a juke box at each table.

I realized from the sign and menu that we were getting pastrami, but I thought the French dip would be served with an au jus. My husband and I split a pastrami french dip that cost $13.75 just for the sandwich; while it was a pretty large sandwich, it wasn't worth $13.75. The pastrami was fatty and lacked flavor and...
